Panel Discussion - Queensland Spanish Mackerel fishery
We have 6 days to provide your feedback on management options proposed by Fisheries Queensland for the Spanish Mackerel (SM) fishery. After reading responses from my members, speaking to other stakeholders and the views shared in today’s podcast please keep the following in mind: * The science, the driver of our fisheries management is flawed. Please listen to the podcast and the rational provided for why the science is fundamentally flawed. * The State Government will not go back to first principles and review the modelling - you have to ask why? * The consultation is inconsistent with best practice: (1) Fisheries Queensland have held invitation only meetings, (2) for some reason there is no email address to submit views and (3) there seems to be no willingness to review the science. So why listen to the podcast? My guests today are members of the SM working group and a charter fishery member who left the group. I would like to thank Richard Gilmore, Peter Stevens, Rob Drane and Gary Powis for helping me produce the podcast. Some key themes from the discussion: (1) the SM working group had no role in developing the stock assessment, (2) the SM working group members brings a massive knowledge base that has largely been ignored (despite calls from working group members to slow down and reconsider the management options proposed by Fisheries Queensland) and (3) there is agreement across the commercial, recreational and charter sectors that there is something very wrong with the science. Again, the submission closing date is 5 pm, Thursday 5 May 2022. Survey link: https://daf.engagementhub.com.au/spanish-mackerel-2022/userinfo/survey-on-east-coast-spanish-mackerel-fishery

New fisheries reporting requirements: A discussion with Mark Alexander
Our thanks to Mark Alexander for his time and candid discussion regarding the fisheries reporting requirements facing commercial fishers from 1 September. His consideration of moving his business to New South Wales is an indictment on the fisheries management regime in this State. More importantly, if Fisheries Queensland is looking for reasons why industry are less and less willing to engage on fisheries management issues - this industry do not have trust or faith in those individuals managing our fisheries resources. All you need to do is listen to Mark during this discussion to truly understand the level of frustration and stress being felt across this industry.

Elaine Lewthwaite, a partner in a Queensland Trawl business provides some valuable insights into how the soc-called reform process has missed the mark. Human resources being a key lost opportunity. Her observation that industry has been marginalized at the cost of the people that work to provide seafood to Queenslanders, Australians and international visitors.

Episode #02: QSIA - AMSA Podcast - Certificate of Operation
Now is the time to renew your AMSA Certificates of Operation In the next few months, most 5-year certificates of operation for Queensland fishing vessels will be due for renewal. To renew your Certificate of Operation: If you have more than one vessel and separate certificates for each vessel – consider consolidating all your vessels onto a single certificate of operation when you make your renewal. This will save you money as the single 5-year certificate will cost $200 for all your boats, rather than $200 for each boat on separate certificates. Where possible, please provide a copy of all the current certificates with your application. If you would like to renew your certificate, can provide a copy of the current certificate and do not want to make any changes, you can apply using the following: AMSA Form 553 If you would like to renew your certificate, are unable to provide a copy of the current certificate, please apply using AMSA Form 504 and select the new a certificate option. If you want to make changes or consolidate all your vessels into a single certificate you will need to select the option to ‘make a change’ or ‘apply for a new certificate’ on the AMSA form 504. If you need any further help, call AMSA Connect on 1800 627 484, 8am-7pm weekdays. Please ensure you renew your certificates on time or a Temporary Operations permission will be required to continue operating. Thanks for joining us on the podcast and if you have any questions please send them to email@example.com or Mick.Bishop@amsa.gov.au.
